The Act promotes greater openness and accountability across the public sector by requiring the College to make information available proactively, through a publication scheme.

Northampton College’s scheme follows the model publication scheme produced for further education colleges by the Office of the Information Commissioner.

The publication scheme is a guide to the information we make available to the public as part of our normal business activities. The information covered is included in the following classes:

The scheme is not a list of actual publications, because these will change as new material is published or existing material revised. It is however, the College's commitment to make available the information described.

A publication scheme must set out the classes, or categories of information published. It must make clear how the information described can be accessed and whether or not charges will be made.

Accessing information covered by the publication scheme

To request information available through our publication scheme, please contact:

Steve Rankine
Freedom of Information Officer
Northampton College
Booth Lane
Northampton
NN3 3RF

Where possible we intend to progressively publish all documents covered by the scheme in electronic format via our website although at present most documents are available in hard copy only.

What about information not covered by the publication scheme?

You have the right, under the Freedom of Information Act 2000, to request any information held by a public authority which it has not already made available through its publication scheme.

Requests should be made in writing and, in general, public authorities will have 20 working days to respond. They may charge a fee, which will be calculated according to fees regulations. They will not be required to release information to which an exemption in the Act legitimately applies. However, public authorities may be required to explain to the applicant why they are not releasing information and they may also have to justify this to the Information Commissioner.

Feedback

It is important that this publication scheme meets your needs. If you find the scheme difficult to understand, please let us know. We also welcome suggestions as to how our scheme might be improved. Any questions, comments or complaints about this scheme should be sent in writing to the named contact above.

If we are unable to resolve any complaint, you have the right to complain to the Information Commissioner, the independent body who oversees the Freedom of Information Act:
